Born in Melbourne, Andy moved to Shanghai in 2009 chasing the modern Australian dream of not living in Australia.
Over the last 5 years he’s toured through 30 cities in China, HK, Melbourne, South Korea and the US. He’s worked with Ari Shaffir, Kurt Metzger, Des Bishop, Jimmy Shubert, Ruben Paul, Paul Ogata and Joe Klocek. And he performs in Mandarin… 你好 indeed.
He also hosts the weekly podcast Stuck In The Middle.
His current show “My Wife, The Russian” sold out in Shanghai, and he’s preparing to take it to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2017.
He opened for Wali Collins at Gotham Comedy Club’s Metropolitan Room in NYC.
Andy’s major comedy influences are Dave Chappelle, George Carlin, and Dave Attell.
Hi, everyone, I am Storm Xu, Comedian/Actor. Born and raised probably gonna die in Yangpu Shanghai.
I started my comedy career all the way back to 2012, the initial motive was to insult my ex-girlfriend. However over time, comedy and I clicked, then the rest is history.
I don't really do much jokes about my ethnicity background, that's hack. Although audience love to hear it, so sometimes I just do it anyway.
I am really self-conscious about my looks, last year I spent thousands on dental care, and I bought an IPHONE 6S yesterday.
In addition to all of that, my current aspiration of comedy is to meet bill burr, sit down have a chat with him regarding to sports and Patrice ONeal, if it changes, I will update it accordingly.
I toured Australia as a member of Comedy Zone Asia 2016, I am headed to something big, stay tuned!
